Redfern’s Cottage provides a variety of learning opportunities designed to be fun and engaging for everyone. We aim to engage visitors with Uttoxeter’s history within a global context through our collections of artifacts and archives.
We are currently redesigning our education programme for schools, home educated groups and other educational and social groups. Our new programme will be based around National Curriculum guidelines on history for Key Stages 1 and 2, beginning with Uttoxeter’s Anglo- Saxon connections and covering key periods through to the late Victorians.
Each activity will consider Uttoxeter within its world-wide historical setting, allowing pupils to become fully emerged with the museum’s collection and stories. To take part in our Free Pilot Education Sessions then please contact us.
Redfern’s Cottage will be closed for general school bookings from July 2016 until April 2017 but we have an exciting range of events during this time which will give teachers a taste of our new education programme. To register your interest please contact us.
Redfern’s Cottage offer college and university student work experience placements covering museum collection management, heritage building conservation skills and heritage management.

Redfern’s Cottage can provide organised groups with talks about the history of Redfern’s Cottage, its inhabitants and the displays at the museum as well as offering guided tours of Uttoxeter town.
